This spectacular 1985 Buick Wildcat concept car incorporated four-wheel drive and a McLaren engine based on Buick’s 3.8-liter V-6 block, mounted just behind the seats. The engine has 24 valves, dual overhead camshafts and field-programmable sequential-port fuel injection. Unlike other Buick dream cars, this one emphasized the engine. The top of the powerplant is visible through an opening in the rear deck. Besides an unusual aerodynamic design, the latter-day Wildcat features technical and design breakthroughs in joining the transparent and solid portions of the body. It has no traditional doors. As the canopy is raised, the steering wheel tilts forward for ease of entry. The body structure is composite carbon fiber and glass. This car, developed in cooperation with PPG Industries, was given the coveted 1986 award for prototype projects by the International Jury of the Car Design Award Turino-Piemonte, presented at the Turin (Italy) Auto Show.

General Motors‘ director of design, Charles Jordan, claims the Wildcat was one of the company's "wildest" cars. The bright red mid-engined car had a large glass "bubble" which lifted upward to allow ease of entry and exit. As the canopy raised forward, the steering wheel would tilt upwards, giving the driver more comfort of entering and exiting. With the canopy raised, the occupants sat on a low, wide sill and swung their feet into the compartment. The dashboard was clear of any instrumentation. Most of the digital info was displayed inside the hub of the steering wheel. The information displayed here included oil pressure, battery, fuel level, and coolant temperature gauges. Directly in the driver's line of vision was a small transparent panel on the dashboard which displayed the car's speed. In the center of the dashboard was a three-dimensional "Spark Map", which presented various engine readings. Several other displays revealed such information as "G" forces experienced in a turn, horsepower, torque, spark function for engine tuning, tire slippage percentage, low air pressure warnings for all four tires, direction of travel with an electronic compass, and oil temperature. It had a governed top speed of only seventy miles per hour.

Concept Car Central


Экспериментальный двухместный спортивный автомобиль "Бюик-уайлдкэт" корпорации "Дженерал моторс" с кузовом из углепластика. Для входа в машину и выхода из нее служит откидывающийся вперед прозрачный купол. Все контрольно-измерительные приборы вынесены в большого диаметра ступицу рулевого колеса.

Дизайн разработан специалистами фирмы "Бюик" под руководством Чарлза Джордана. У кузова очень небольшой коэффициент лобового сопротивления (0,2). Для него характерны плавная, без переломов, поверхность, образованная панелями большой кривизны, а также отсутствие капота с необходимой пластической проработкой деталей верхней части двигателя, окружающих его кузовных панелей и встроенных в них блоков управления, которые образуют единую функциональную зону. Такая демонстрация внутренних структур открывает новые возможности в дизайне.

Особенности конструкции: привод на все колеса с межосевым дифференциалом; заднее расположение силового агрегата; электронные системы управления впрыском топлива, зажиганием, антиблокировочным устройством, автоматической трансмиссией; алюминиевые 16-дюймовые колеса; безопасный ячеистый бензобак.
